Stelvio National Park

Overview

Nature in its purest state

Established in 1935 in the heart of the Central Alps, the Stelvio National Park, covering 330,000 acres, is the largest park in Italy and one of the largest in Europe. It covers the four provinces of Trento, Bolzano, Brescia and Sondrio, offering unique views of glaciers, waterfalls, forests, mountain farms and typical villages. Large ecosystems of flora and fauna coexist here due to the morphological variation. 

Fans of nature and exercise will find the park’s rich territory an ideal habitat for incredible experiences and activities, amid majestic landscapes and clear skies. When you venture out trekking, it’s not difficult to encounter red deer and roe deer or to spot the many species of birds in the sky, including ravens, long-eared owls and golden eagles. 

In addition to nature trails, botanical routes and wildlife areas, you can also follow cultural and environmental trails that include visits to ancient buildings, museums and forts. 

The park borders the Swiss Engadin National Park to the north, the Adamello Regional Park in Lombardy to the south (which in turn is connected to the neighbouring Adamello-Brenta Natural Park in Trentino) and the Tessa Natural Park to the east.
